Barb Richards, program director and afternoon host on Majic 95.1 shared her personal experience with arthritis. She was 16 years old when diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. When she was diagnosed she was told by someone that she would be in a wheelchair by the time she was 21. She vowed then to exercise faithfully and has done that consistently! She runs mini-marathons, runs 3-5 days a week, and takes a spin class! In her spare time, she has helped out the Arthritis Foundation with several events.
